"Overall I would say this was a pretty good cigar that I enjoyed. I did like the 1st part better then the ending. There was a very nice sweet pepper spice at the start which I really liked, but then as the cigar went on some of the flavors faded and it became more muted and smooth." -Wes (SosaCub4Life)

"Overall, I enjoyed this cigar. It had a real good mix of being creamy with a hint of sweetness at the end of the first third, going into the second third. It had a nice amount of overall spice throughout also. The spice did seem to pick up some right towards the end. Good smoke. I would definitely smoke it again." -Wes (SosaCub4Life)
"Enjoyable. As I've been smoking over these past few years, I've slowly begun to lose a taste for heavy maduros, but I like this one, in part because it's not too heavy. It's not particularly complex, but it features everything a maduro ought to. It's like if AJ Fernandez quit blending budget sticks and moved on to the good stuff. Highly recommended for fans of his work who want to try something just a little bit better." -Derek (StogieNinja)

"Overall I would say that it is an ordinary cigar that is a pleasant and easy smoke with no real wow factor. I personally like the nubs so I was slightly disappointed in this. I will try this again but may not go looking for one." -Sandeep (Djangos)

"This cigar was a treat to smoke. The flavors of the first third seemed to find their way into the mix one at a time while the middle married them together in a near perfect balance. The complete change of direction during the final third allowed this cigar to gradually ramp down and finish on a softer, sweeter note. The transitions were noticeable and provided a solid range of developed flavors." -Gregg (McGreggor57)
Richmond, VA -- General Cigar Company is excited to announce today they have hired Sam Leccia as “Cigar and Blend Specialist.” General Cigar has also acquired the Leccia Tobacco Company cigar brands, as part of the Foundry Tobacco Company, and will market and distribute the Black, White and Luchador lines, effective today.
"This may be my favorite cigar I've smoked for BMP. For sure in the top 3. I want to say this is a definite box purchase for me, but I'm afraid of the price tag, I guess we'll find out. I would recommend this to anyone, not too strong, tons of flavor and spices. I think this may be a Habano, but not one I've ever had before, and if it's not, that would be even more interesting because I am not fooled often. Great experience, I can't wait to find out what it was." -Emmett (rhetorik)
